'Edge of Eternity' (ALL) Introduces Herelsor, the City of the Wind - Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 22, 2018 @ 12:00 p.m. PDT

Edge of Eternity is an RPG that will lead you to experience a unique and unusual universe, a world whose design combines futuristic influences, best Japanese RPGs influences and Medieval age influences.

The end of peace for the world of Heryon has come to the edge. An alien civilization has invaded the world to conquer everything, and enslave anyone that would step into their ways, spreading chaos and death through a virus that turns people and animals into metal monsters.

Daryon, the hero, is forced to leave after being haunted by his kind now turned into monsters. Left to the unknown, he decides to throws himself into a crusade of freedom and bravery, to save his world and discover his real origins. His devotion to the world of Heryon will lead him in an adventure he never expected.

200 years ago, a major event sealed the destiny of Heryon. The population and institutions were all sitting around the Crystals, elements that shaped the very deep roots of Heryon, such as the way to do war, the way they live and interact. Thanks to mutual understanding and dissuasion, the 3 continents forming Heryon kept peace in order for more than 80 years. But the time has changed.

What they used to consider as a blessing turned into a curse, and Crystals opened a breach to other worlds, turning peace into war and death. The crystals became dreadful weapons, greedily desired by every nations who fought to get them all, and when everything could have been different, the illusions and promises of power led the nation to abandon peace to throw themselves into death rage and horror.

18 774 GY (Galactic year) marked an important point, as a vessel coming from space did land in the harbor of Junor city. As the news spread quickly through the city, doubts and questions grew even faster as no one ever saw anyone coming out of the ship, which remained closed from the beginning to the end.

18 776 GY, as the city was starting to get used to the presence of this vessel, the most unexpected began. Taking off to the top of Junor, the vessel drastically destroyed the city and lands around. Not a warning neither a sign was to be understood.


Herelsor, the City of the Wind

A city of crafters and merchants who managed to stay clear of the "war's most adverse consequences" as its natives would put it - Herelsor is known to trade in most valuable goods. Its tantalizing wealth is spread out between many rich families who own most of the city's world-renowned businesses.

There has always been enough gold flowing through its streets to insure it would never bleed to death - even in times of war - for all of Heryon's nobility crave for the subtle refinement of Herelsian craft, from their famous winery or delicate gem-cutting. No other city on the planet can boast such an exquisite savoir-faire.

The many spires that circle the city's perimeter harbour several dozens of hardened Fire Bearers... sorcerers who will not hesitate to hurl bursts of fireballs to any Archelite's aircraft that would dare to hover their way.

Street urchins prowl the back alleys - teenagers of the age of 14 or 15, expelled from the far too coveted city orphanages. Living in the sewers and organized in small "families", they go by until they finally reach the age of conscription - for them, those two years of homelessness is but a fleeting moment between the suffocating atmosphere of the orphanage, and the horrors of the war.

A war that - they know - will claim their lives just like it claimed their parent's.

Jaded but lucid, these kids are able to take this small moment of freedom for what it is: the best time of their lives. In the streets of Herelsor, they enjoy a short period of emancipation before their conscription into the army - even if they have to live off scavenging and stealing.

"They will serve their country soon enough" whisper the rich merchants with indulgence as they throw a few coins their way.

A loose handful of them becomes apprentices or shopkeepers. Some of them get "adopted" by rich patrons. Some others leave the city and become outlaws... but no matter their destiny, and no matter their choices, all of them know that their existence will be short-lived and full of hardships.

Daryon and Selene were orphans too before their mother took them in. Even though the latter warned them not to go on any "stupid goose chase" and "throw their life away trying to save someone who is already dead", Daryon and Selene are still hell-bent on finding a cure to save her from the Corrosion.

Herelsor will be the first city you will discover - as players. It will be but a short stop in your journey - and a convenient base of operations where you will be able to slowly develop your characters through the means of crafting, trading or side-questing.

Edge of Eternity will be enter Early Access on Steam on Nov. 29, 2018.

Nothing but desolation and horror rained over the people of Junor, which was now forced to leave their native land, forming by now the Nomads of Junor.

Incomprehension and fear marked a decisive point in their history, and from this moment technology was prohibited.

Daryon and Salvia share a common burden: a jewel. A necklace made of Crystal and mechanic part, proof of technology. Something happened the first time they crossed their paths in the little village of Elon, and as they felt closer, destiny sealed their fates. Sentenced to death by the Consortium judge, under the law that prohibited the use of any form of technology, Daryon and Salvia suddenly realized their fates were to become one and only.

Although it was the first time they met, they suddenly felt bounded, and joined their forces to escape the Consortium. They began a journey together, both burned by the desire to understand the origins of the world and finally figure out why they had these necklaces, and why they could not be removed. Meanwhile, the situation on Heryon was getting worse as the days went by. The metal disease did spread on the Astryan continent and animals started to turn into hybrid mechanic monsters. Nobody seemed to realize how big the danger was. Until the world started to fall into the void of carnage. Will you set them alive? Save them. Save the world, the universe, your life, and discover your origins in an odyssey you have never seen before. Explore the world in a corrupted medieval atmosphere and discover the deep secrets of the space, to finally seal your destiny in death or endless hope.
